We were delighted to welcome representatives from Intel Ireland to the school yesterday (20 April 2018). The representatives visited both of our second classes in Rooms 7 and 10 to discuss the process of ‘building a bridge’. The boys were initially shown pictures of many famous bridges around the world and attention was drawn to their main features. The boys worked collaboratively to firstly design, and then build, their bridges. They were given straws, lollipop sticks, string and ‘blue tac’ and were asked to design a bridge between two chairs that a toy car could travel over. The boys had great fun completing the task and it is clear that we have many budding engineers in our midst.
